Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens Game #2
A very defensive first period yielded a single goal on eight shots as the Leafs held an advantage in shots at five to three and an edge on the scoreboard as Keon's (4) early tally struck first. AFter two periods and Toronto were outshooting their rivals eighteen eleven and were up 2-0 thanks to Oliver (2) scoring with only four seconds left in the frame as he beat Worsley with a sweet shot.
Ellis (4) with less than three minutes gone in the final period and Walton (4) with less than six to play made it a insurmountable lead to tie the series up at 1-1. It didn't go all their own way though as Montreal halved the deficit in the final minutes with JC Tremblay (1) scoring and then setting up Beliveau (2).
